Analysis of hot and cold Kritz benchmark with MCNP5 and temperature-specific nuclear data libraries

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

One of the longstanding obstacles to the use of the MCNP Monte Carlo code' for reactor physics calculations has been its requirement for nuclear data libraries at the temperature associated with the application of interest. Recently, however, an auxiliary code, named 'doppler,' has been developed that uses an existing nuclear data library as the basis for generating a new library at the desired temperature. doppler has simple input and is straightforward to use. Libraries generated with doppler and based on the existing ENDF66 library have been developed for three hot Kritz benchmark. Results obtained from MCNPS for those hot benchmarks ... continued below
